    Just thought I'd make a thread for everyone else who has been accepted so far.
    Congratulations to all of you, and good luck to those still waiting on an answer.
    Best wishes!
    And since many people seem to be asking about how long it took, feel free to post your apply-accepted time period.

    Applied 06 January, Accepted 13 January
    Shooting for the first week here, how about yourselves?

    Look forward to seeing some of you this summer. Can't wait!

    Would you guys mind posting your other stats like PSAT, SAT, ACT scores and class standing so others can see what it takes to get in?

    Well I took my finals early and it was great! Seniors take finals a week before anyway in my school and most of my classes had both juniors and seniors in it so all of my finals were already made. Also, during midterms and finals, we get "half days" where you only need to come in for your exams and the last exam per day is over at 10:45. Most of the time your principal and teachers are really helpful with getting your finals done early so you can attend this great program. So actually, getting out a week earlier could be in your favor :biggrin:.

    Sorry to butt in this thread haha :rolleyes:

    Applied Dec 26th.
    Accepted Jan 8th. (Holidays made it longer wait, Id like to think, haha)

    Sent in my packet last week for the 1st week. History, Mock Trial, and Computer & Technology Workshops as my top 3 choices.

    PSAT - 169
    SAT - 1740
    ACT - 31 Composite (And a separate + Writing score of 28)

    Maybe some of us would even end up in the same squads, imagine that, haha

    Applied December 14th, accepted on the 26th.
    I want week two! I put Leadership & Ethics, the politics one, and mock trial

    PSAT - 195
    ACT - 32 composite, but with a terrible 28 on science that really brought me down
    SAT - just took it no scores yet!

    I'm in the top fifth of my class, three varsity sports, too much leadership, JROTC

    Sure, here's my information-- Sorry, I don't know how to edit posts.
    My top choices were Leadership & Ethics, Chemistry & Life science, and the history workshop.

    ACT: Composite 29
    SAT: 1800
    No PSAT
    Varsity Captain of Cross Country, 3 Years
    Junior Varsity Softball, 1 year
    Editor-In-Chief of Newspaper
    Literary Magazine
    Mach United Nations
    GPA: 10.11113
    Class Rank: Est. 7/150
    English Award
    Scholar Athlete Award, 3 years, 4 Seasons
    Part Time Job
    Cancer Walk Team Captain

    Taking EMT/MRT Classes
    Volunteer at local fire station
    National Honor Society

    Pennies For Patients Leukemia Benefit Project Leader

    And I believe that was all I could fit to include. As you can see, I placed a lot of stress on my extra curricular and volunteering activities, because I knew my SAT scores were not outstanding! Also, I mentioned that i was retaking the SAT come Spring, and somehow managed to squeeze this all into 255 characters, but it was worth well worth it! :)

    It's unweighted on a 12 scale, sorry not sure why my school does that!
    So not sure number wise, I believe just over a 3.7, but it would be an A- in letter unweighted.
